Simply Diving is a Scubapro Educational Association (SEA) Dive Centre

This means that not only do we provide all our students and divers with this brand of global leading dive equipment, but we also have a duty to ensure our kit is regularly maintained, serviced and replenished every two years


Our RIB boat is moored just yards from our dive centre in Marbella Port (Puerto Deportivo de Marbella) and has a capacity for 10 divers only. This is good, because we like to keep our groups small and supervision tight.

Most of our dive sites are within a maximum 5 minute gentle boat ride away, often accompanied by very large schools of spinner and bottlenose dolphins.

A final few words from the owner, Alex...

Simply Diving has been going strong now for many years but our philosophy is the same now as it always has been: We’re a family-run business providing the best customer service. We’re proud of the hundreds of divers we have looked after and are often told that their day with us was the best of their holiday. We pride ourselves on the quality of training we offer and the fact that the training is done by such friendly, knowledgeable and safety-conscious staff members.
